Training Overview

At UF Research Computing we strive to make our resources accessible, efficient, and easy to use. An important part of the effective research computing is the knowledge of how to apply the many available tools in a productive and efficient manner. The comprehensive and clear documentation, well-structured training, and individual help that we provide are all means of achieving that goal. We run a series of training sessions and tutorials during each semester of the school year and in the Summer.

Much of our training content has migrated to the UFIT Training page. The training schedule below is still maintained, though we are in the process of migrating videos to the UFIT page. With the transition to HiPerGator 2.0, much of the content below is out of date and will be removed as new material is placed on the UFIT training page.

You can request a Group Training Session for your group.

Additional Training Opportunities

In addition to the training sessions coordinated by UF Research Computing, we are aware of many training opportunities provided by other institutions and vendors. These are listed below.

Intel Software Tools Technical Webinar Series

This free webinar series presents tools, tips, and techniques that will help sharpen your development skills on developing and improving your high performance compute applications for multicore and manycore on Intel® Xeon® processors and Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessors. Expert technical teams at Intel as well as open source innovators discuss development tools, programming models, vectorization and execution models that will get your development efforts powered up to get the best out of your applications and platforms.

Full schedule and registration information is available here.


The Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment online training mostly lists html tutorials offered at the Cornell University. Offered tutorials cover general programming, scripting, parallel programming (concepts, message passing interface (MPI), openmp), visualisation, code improvement, and other topics.

The XSEDE Training Calendar includes many useful webcasts that are provided by a number of institutions. For most events registration is required.
